We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 13th May 2018. (S.R.)
Two hundred and seventy years ago in 1748, and almost to the day, a fifty
six mile straight road was opened between Killarney and Cork.
Although being awarded the contract for it, John Murphy from Castleisland had to raise his own finance, in the hope that he would recoup it all by making it a toll road. But the road brought financial ruin for Murphy, resulting in debts of over four thousand pounds. Nobody knows for certain what happened to him afterwards..
